Home/ Industry / PC at the price of Nano?

New Delhi: Surfing the net, uploading snaps, watching movies, now not a ‘click’ but just a ‘touch’ away. HP has launched a new generation of all-in-one PC’s - TouchSmart. e6ffd596-6950-11dd-a0d6-000b5dabf613.flv

Priced at a formidable 88,000, HP’s TouchSmart PC is not for those hunting for a bargain. Satjiv Chehel, Senior VP, Global Marketing, Personal Systems Group, HP, says this product is not for the average Indian consumers.

It is targeted at the higher end of the market.

But at this price tag, will not an average consumer go for a premium laptop instead of a desktop?

Richard Walker, Senior Vice President and worldwide head, Consumer PC Business Unit, HP says that inspite of the mobility that the laptop offers most of the homes still have a desktop. The Touchsmart can sort your music collection in various modes, upload, edit and share photos all by just touching the screen. The TouchSmart even has a built in DVD burner and integrated premium stereo speakers.

What’s more, it even has ambient lighting, which illuminates the keyboard in a dimly lit space. But if you want to use word or even email someone, you will have to revert back to using the good old keyboard again!
